Brotha D Honoured As Manukau Hero

19th November 2008

It was an honour and privilidge to be recognised for our contribution in our neighbourhood. Like I've stated in the past, we are musicians and representatives of our music first and foremost, if what we do influence or makes an impact on our neighbourhood in a positive way, then that's how we do. Big shout out to all the kids that came out for it, especially Manurewa Intermediate lol. Also I can't forget Sky City cinemas for this achievement especially in great company like the late Sir Edmund Hillary, David Tua, Jonah Lomu etc.
The biggest mention would have to be our man, the mayor of our great
city, Len 'The Comeback King' Brown. If you didn't know Len had a crazy
heart attack at this years Pacific Island Music Awards while giving a speech about how proud he is of South Auckland and its musical landscape, he too was a recipient as a Manukau Hero. Stay up and stay healthy for our city Len.

Game recognise game, your boy doing his bit for society!!!
Much luv and respects, Brotha D.
